Dems Face Hard Choices After Hillary's Awful Book Tour Week
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 06/13/2014 | IBD Staff

Posted on 06/14/2014 5:38:41 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer

If Hillary Clinton´s much ballyhooed — and ultimately disastrous — national book tour is any indication, Democrats face some hard choices in the months ahead about whom they can run for president.

You can´t blame Clinton for scheduling her "Hillary Week" at a time when there was so much real news going on. But she certainly deserves blame for the fact that the only coverage she managed to get from her book tour was all bad.

Could the Democrats possibly coming to there realization that there is no ‘there’ there with her? If so, how is that reconciled juxtaposed against nearly 6 years of the Buffoon in Chief?

she is all they’ve got... and they know it..

in 1 year, it will be “oh yeah, that book didn’t do so well”.

What the New York Times wants, it gets...they run the crowning operation.

Democrats live in a parallel reality of rainbows, unicorns and fairies. (Ignore that some of the fairies have bulgy Adams apples and look like Ed Asner in drag.) Reality will not dawn on them until the gas chamber fills with choking smoke. Then their last gasp will be “Bush’s fault.”

I heard a local ‘Libtard Analyst’ on the radio yesterday, spouting that, ‘Oh, the Democrats NEVER know WHO they’re running up until the last minute.’

ROFLMAO! *SNORT*

Actually if she were a Republican they would crown her but the “its her/his turn” thing is not part of the Dem’s playbook.

It does not help when you try to defend the contents of a book that you did not write. Perhaps she should blame it all on the ghost writers.

I hope they DO crown her, just like we did with Dole and McCain just because it was “their turn”

You guys need to go easy on her instead of posting the racist, sexist comments. She is only trying to get back on her feet after she left the White House DEAD BROKE!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way, is this book stocked in the FICTION department?

I tend to agree with another Freeper who astutely pointed out that her real "coronation" was supposed to be in 2008 -- and that it was the Democrats who dragged in a jug-eared nitwit and former exchange student from Kenya to bring her down.

I think she's got a lot of enemies in her own party that will be a bigger concern for her than the Republicans.

Sadly, though, there are still MILLIONS of mindless, clueless voters who would pull the lever for her, just because...

Despite a resume that contains NOTHING of value to ANYONE (other than the Clintoons); despite service as a US Senator and Secretary of State with nothing to show other than dead Americans and a much diminished reputation for the nation; despite an unrelenting hubris that demonstrates her elitism; despite all that, there are still those millions who would blindly support her candidacy, just because...

Yes, those ...

but also the MSM asking for her studied opinion, given her "successful" role as SoS before John "I was in Viet Nam" Kerry - about the un-checked mass migration now on-going "South of the Border" (not the "theme park" in Dillon, SC), or the spreading upheaval now in the Middle East, or maritime tensions in the Pacific Basin, or ...

[Calling Susan Rice who I am positive has a tale suited for all eventualities - available as PowerPoint foils - it is all Shrub's fault.]

Why worry about the reception of a ghost-written book, when other more current and interesting events beckon?

I'm thinking Mike Bloomberg or George Clooney could beat HRC in the primaries.

Bloomberg is an obvious challenger. Though he calls himself a Pub, he's clearly a liberal. His resume shames HRC’s resume. He has money to burn on a campaign. He was a successful mayor of a major liberal city, New York.

Clooney could beat HRC purely on charm & wit. Clinton lacks both. The Rats elected an incompetent, ignorant fool in 08 & 12, based on charm, wit, & race (I think the white Rats are getting tired of rap music & posses at all their parties). Why not again in 16?

Between the 2, Bloomberg has the best shot, though Clooney wouldn't surprise me.

When Hillary loudly implodes ala Howard Dean after giving a screechy, bizarre, toneless speech, they will run Elizabeth Warren as the nation's first Native American female Presidential candidate. When the nation finally sees through that incredible lie, they will trot out the young, handsome, "moderate" Andrew Cuomo to assume the crown that his father should have rightly taken.

After that, I got nuthin'. The field is pretty thin on the D side. It's no wonder they're pushing the H Bomb.

I agree. Carter, Bill Clinton, & Obama came out of the blue. They were standing in no line of succession.

HRC was thoroughly rejected in 08 though most thought she had a lock on the nomination. She is not very likable by anyone but her cronies & those determined to have a woman president.

Liberals are so irrational it's hard to tell who they will support.

I have always felt that Hillary Clinton would be an eminently defeatable candidate, assuming America’s citizens could fight off the Chamber-of-Crony-Amnesty enough to get someone other than Jeb Bush or Mitt Romney on the Republican ticket.

It is well known that Hillary despises the press, and hates the very concept of being questioned. The fact that she lost her cool with an NPR reporter speaks volumes. Hillary also has none of her husband’s charm or charisma. Her shrill petulant matter of speaking is more evocative of a nasty ex-wife than a political leader.

I wish I could say that Hillary’s lack of qualifications and accomplishments would be a factor, but look who got elected president in the last two elections.

The Dems are going to go with Castro from San Antonio with Cuomo as the VP choice. Clinton is not physically or emotionally capable of running a campaign for the next 2 1/2 years. And I don’t believe the media has it in them to continue the lie.

A few more months like this past week, and Ms. Clinton will outdue Chris Christie!!! Although, Mr. Christie has dropped eighty-five pounds. Hillary Clinton, alas is going the other way!!!

I think you’re right in a sense. Today’s big Democrat push is to legalize as many of the 20-50 million illegals in this country and convert them to legal Democrat voters.

They have absolutely no intrinsic connection with a fat, hagged out, worn out 60s bomb throwing radical-turned-false-icon like Hillary. She’s pathetically damaged and woefully ill-equipped to cogently and peacefully respond to a refereed dialogue with someone like Ted Cruz in a debate, for instance. Her only recourse now is the remnant of a vindictive roar that now really doesn’t carry any bite, and I think that media are beginning to suspect and challenge this.

The Democrats won’t put her up for candidacy in the end. They’ll pay deference and some obligatory honor to her, but you will see her fur get more bite marks the closer and closer we get to crunch time. She won’t be ‘it.’

A strong faction of the Dem Party messed up Ms Inevitable’s last trip to her coronation. They most likely are doing the same behind the scenes for 2016. There is a faction that does not like the Clintons. They are quite probably searching for another challenger.

In looking at election history, Democrats leading up to the 1976 election were divided, with no obvious front runner, once Ted Kennedy announced he wouldn’t run in ‘76.

There were many less than prominent Democrat candidates in the primaries, including Fred Harris, Mo Udall, Frank Church, a young Jerry Brown, and a former governor little known nationally, Jimmy Carter.

Uncommitted actually won the Iowa caucuses in 1976, but Jimmy Carter was 2nd, so he was the person who emerged as a front runner, and the rest is history. (unfortunately)

My point is, there are other Democrats who would jump into the race if Hillary falters or doesn’t run.

They could recycle Howard Dean, Al Gore, and John Kerry, for example.

We could see Andrew Cuomo, Elizabeth Warren, Castro from San Antonio, Gov. O’Malley of Maryland in the primaries.

Another point to make is that people such as Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama, were all little known nationally, until they decided to run for president, and became known in the primaries.

Hillary seems to have a vindictive mean streak which other politicians don’t seem to have.

Remember back in ‘92, she said she could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, in such a tone of contempt for being questioned about her legal career while Bill was governor?

remember her screeching that we are Americans and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration?

Remember her angrily saying at the congressional hearing on Benghazi, “what difference does it make”???

The other day, she argued with the interviewer about when and how she evolved on favoring homosexual marriage.

None of these types of incidents help her public image, or make the media want to provide her favorable coverage.
